Connor passes on draft, will return to Penn State
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State linebacker Dan Connor is passing up a chance to enter the NFL draft to return to school for his senior year.
Connor had 113 tackles, five sacks and three forced fumbles last season.
"We gave it some thought and explored options, but it wasn't what I wanted right now," Connor said Friday in a statement released through the school. "This team is very close to getting some things done and I want to help make it happen."
